Insight: Capitol Chat / The Stagecoach / Lila Downs / Sound Advice: Cale Wiggins


Published August 14, 2014


Capitol Chat - It's been a busy week as the California lawmakers faced deadlines before the end of session on Aug. 31. The most important issue on everyone's mind was a water bond for the November ballot. Capital Bureau Chief Ben Adler was there following last night's vote to approve a $7.5 billion water bond.

The Stagecoach - During California's pioneer days, stagecoaches hauling gold from isolated mines to big-city safes were easy targets for highwaymen. Road accidents ended in disaster and coaches tumbled down mountainsides in the Sierra Nevada.
Sacramento author Cheryl Anne Stapp's new book "The Stagecoach in Northern California: Rough Rides, Gold Camps & Daring Drivers" takes readers back to an era before the railroad and automobile arrived in the state.
A time when the stagecoach was king of the road. Stapp is officially launching the book Thursday at Time Tested Books in Sacramento.


Lila Downs - Lila Downs, Mexican American Grammy award-winning singer, will perform at Sacramento's Crest Theatre. Music from her 17th album and Grammy-winning "Pecados y Milagros" will be featured, alongside music from the Hispanic Roots project. Her Southwest Tour kicks off in Chicago on August 11 and her CD, ""Raíz,"a collaboration with Argentine singer Soledad and Spain's Niña Pastori, will release the following day, August 12.
